Cowdenbeath vs Rangers Match Preview

Steven Gerrard gets his first taste of the Scottish Cup against a club who were in the second tier north of the border with Rangers four years ago, but have fallen on harder times since.

Cowdenbeath were relegated when they crossed swords with the Gers in 2014-15 and also went down the following season to the SPFL basement, while in the last two campaigns they have had to survive play-offs against East Kilbride and Cove Rangers to avoid dropping out of the league altogether.

But the Blue Brazil are doing better this time around, sitting mid-table with no threat of relegation, and they have beaten Clyde and Brora Rangers to reach round four of the cup.

This is the second time in four years they have been paired with Rangers at this stage and Cowdenbeath will hope to fare better than their 5-1 drubbing at Ibrox in January 2016.

Rangers are ending their three-week winter break with this game, their most recent match being the 1-0 Old Firm victory over Celtic which blew further open a surprisingly competitive Premiership title race.

There should be little doubt about Rangers winning this tie and rather than being a struggle or a breeze in Fife, we think it will be classed in the category of ‘routine’ or ‘workmanlike’ for Gerrard’s side by something like a two-goal margin.
